The expo is a collaboration between THE CONSTANT NOW, and Please Add Color.

THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT - PT2 takes place in November 2021.
Making patchworks is a way for Lisa Ijeoma (°1997, Bruges, BE) to work through her emotions and personal experiences. The base of her narratives lies in trauma, racism, fear, abuse, and feelings of displacement and belonging: systemic issues most people of color experience firsthand. Furthermore, the young artist is fascinated by the gaze of the Other, which is present in the over-sexualization and exploitation of black bodies.
